Sepultura is making lemonade out of lemons.
The veteran thrash outfit was recently banned from performing live at The Palace – hamra in Beirut, Lebanon. According to a news release sent Tuesday from Nuclear Blast Records stated the band was enacted by the nation’s general security office. No reason for the ban was noted in the release.
The ban, the first ever in the band’s history, forced the band to cancel its performance at the noted venue. It did not, however, keep the band from performing for its fans in Beirut.
As a result of the Beirut incident, the band announced through the news release, its May 2 performance in Dubai will be streamed online through the band’s official YouTube channel. The concert is scheduled to stream live at 10 p.m. Lebanese time, 9 p.m. CET and 3 p.m. EST.
The band’s members offered thanks to the staff of the Embassy of Brazil in Beirut for their support, Skull Session and Sepulnation around the world for covering the developing situation.
Sepultura’s upcoming live dates are part of an ongoing effort to promote its 2017 album Machine Messiah, which was released January 2017 through Nuclear Blast Records. Machine Messiah spawned two singles — ‘I Am The Enemy‘ and ‘Phantom Self.’
Sepultura released eight studio interview sessions leading up to the release of Machine Messiah. The videos are listed below.
